Rest and Recharge

How did you spend your Sunday?

I hope you found some time to slow down and to relax before the new week begins again.

Our family is trying to not be as scheduled on Sundays as we are so busy during the week. We are open to play yet we don’t want to feel committed to responsibilities if that makes sense.

For example, after church, one of my BFFs came over to have lunch and to watch a chick flick matinee together. Jeff went to watch a football game with his buddy and the kids just hung out. This was totally relaxing.

We came back together later in the day to share a celebratory dinner in honor of Charlie’s presidential win for his elementary school, followed by a trip to the grocery store to bring home ice cream.

This is how we relaxed and rested today. What did you find relaxing? I wish you a peaceful week, filled with love, BeLovers.

Domestic Goddess Taxi Driver

Sometimes my life must sound so glamorous. Haha!  Just kidding, but it’s really not. I truly try to make the most of every day and to fit so many things in before I crash onto my pillow at night. I rise at 6:15 am and begin working right away – decluttering and starting laundry and the dishwasher and helping with breakfast and lunches before heading out at 7:15 am with drop offs, unless Jeff does the drop offs and I get to continue cleaning!

I wanted to share what the second half of my day looked like, after cleaning toilets and bedrooms and shopping at Costco. Oh, and being present to see my son’s speech as he was running for President of his school today and WON!!

This was definitely the highlight of my day. Congratulations Charlie and to all his friends who were so brave and prepared such great posters and speeches and took the risk to stand in front of their classmates to share their stories, hopes and dreams to become future council members.  They were truly amazing and talented fifth graders! I am so proud of them.

So back to the second half of my day… I am basically a taxi driver with 15 minute – 45 minute gaps in between my driving hours from 2:30 pm until 8:30 pm.  Here’s what today looked like, however Jeff was working locally today and was able to help me with our shuttle service.

2:30 Pick up Juliana from school

3:00 Pick up Christian from school

4:00 Drop off Christian to practice

5:00 Drop off Charlie to practice

6:00 Drop off Juliana to practice

6:30 Pick up Charlie from practice

7:00 Pick you Christian from practice

8:00 Pick up Juliana from practice.

Isn’t that so glamorous?  Just kiddin’ But I did enjoy feeling the sunset on my face as I waited in the car and seeing the huge, red sun setting as we drove home after Christian’s practice.
